About Items of VirtueWe (Gary and Renee) are a retired couple that finds the search for and identification of items the most intriguing part of the journey. Living in Morehead City NC, a port city active since Blackbeard sailed the oceans, lends a local historical aspect to a number of the items found locally as well as early items brought by ship.
WWII era lends another aspect of collecting with a German submarine being sank off shore and the numerous military bases built in the area give another military antique and collectible aspect not found in many locales.
We have been in the art and antiques business for more than 30 years. We sell only authentic items with artists and makers named if known.
Eclectic is our mantra and we hope to fuel your enjoyment of collecting.
